    "Aquarium food booster that features highly unsaturated OMEGA 3 fatty acids, Marine Lipids (200 mg/g), Stabilized Vitamin C (200 mg) and Vitamin B12 Cyanocobalamin (240 mcg). Soak any freeze-dried, frozen food or dried food to give it additional nutritional value or use directly in the tank to benefit filter-feeding invertebrates. Boosts the nutritional value of live brine shrimp. American Marine Selcon does not alter water chemistry and it does not contain Yeast, Phosphates or Nitrates. It also helps cure Head and Lateral Line Erosion / Disease"

    All the nems are beautiful, but I really like those yellows.

    Wow - I had completely forgotten about Selcon until I saw this ... I guess if it's still around it is good stuff!

    Quick note on Protein Skimmer in nem tanks - I ran a 100 gallon stock tank full of nems (had about 50 in there when the tank came down) with no skimmer for over 3 years. Only fish were a pair of perculas, so that may have helped. Did 20% water change every two weeks.

    @jestersix Did you have any rock work in there too keep them a bit more content? I've been kind of thinking some mushroom shaped relatively smooth structures on a base might be a good idea. Thoughts?

    And the one thing about Nems is while they do produce a lot of waste it's very easy to just vacuum out.

    Actually I did have some rock work in there - the stock tank was pretty tall and I wanted to use that open water space and built structures to allow the nems to move up into the water column.

    I did vacuum the tank a couple times a week...

    Were yours smooth so it was easy to remove the nems if necessary? Or did you care?

    And if I go this route can you build smooth anemone mushroom rocks?

    Nope. I wish. There's some question as to whether there's even a real Lemon Drop still in existence.

    I didn't care - had enough slits that there were always some on the walls and easy to remove...
